Biography

Rachel Hill is an acclaimed folk-inspired singer-songwriter celebrated for her captivating live performances and evocative songwriting. Revered for her mastery of live vocal looping, Rachel's vocals have been lauded as 'gorgeous, commanding, and enchanting' (Indie Top 39), creating immersive and unforgettable experiences for her audiences. Influenced by artists including Paris Paloma and Lizzie McAlpine Rachel's music resonates with listeners on a deep emotional level.

From a young age, Rachel has lived and breathed music, training as a classical soprano and channelling her experiences into songwriting from the age of 12. She later studied music at the University of Cambridge before completing a masters in Commercial Songwriting and Production. She is now a full-time freelance artist, songwriter, and producer based in Cambridge. 

 

In the last year Rachel has won the prestigious Purbeck Rising award at the Purbeck Valley Folk Festival as well as receiving widespread acclaim from BBC Introducing. Last June she released her debut album ‘Words Left Unsaid’, which she toured across Germany for three weeks with the support of a grant from Help Musicians UK. Rachel is already in the midst of planning her return to Germany for her second international tour this autumn, largely made-up of house concerts; a form of performance which the artist really advocates for. In her own words: ‘not only do house concerts bring the most incredibly unique, and intimate atmosphere to a performance, they also bypass the gatekeeping of venues which consistently provides a barrier to independent artists like me’.
